Shenton Park Field Station

Dedicated facility supporting plant and animal research

The University’s Shenton Park Field Station covers 67 hectares and includes numerous facilities to support research within the Faculty of Science. Multiple research projects and trials are carried out at the field station at any one time.

Located 15 minutes from campus, the site allows plant biologists to have access to large open irrigated field areas, netted areas, screen houses, glasshouses, PC2 facilities and quarantine facilities.

Several laboratories carry out plant breeding work, turf research and general plant research.

The field station includes Australia's largest recirculating aquaculture facility, with a total volume of three million litres. Animal biologists also have access to animal enclosures, paddocks and a sheep milking facility
